Suoh Pavlichenko (蘇芳・パブリチェンコ, Suō Paburichenko) is a character in Darker than Black, also known as Darker than Black: The Black Contractor (DARKER THAN BLACK ー黒の契約者ー, Dākā Zan Burakku -Kuro no Keiyakusha-), a Japanese anime television series created and directed by Tensai Okamura and animated by Bones.
Suoh is a 13-year-old girl who lives in Vladivostok, Russia. In the Gemini of the Meteor story arc, Suoh becomes involved in the war and machinations between the various groups and Contractors, and her life is forever changed when she meets Hei. She is Eurasian, with a Japanese mother and Russian father. She also has a twin brother, Shion, who uses a wheelchair. She is later revealed to have some form of contractor ability when she goes into mental shock, which awakens her latent powers. She can manifest an anti-tank rifle (PTRD) from a meteor fragment she wears as a pendant, and can wield the rifle easily despite its heavy weight of the weapon and powerful recoil; however, even though the weapon comes with its own ammunition each time it is created, the wear and tear on it remains, so Suoh must maintain it like any other gun. The payment for her power is to fold origami. Her stated goal is to kill all Contractors (though this might have changed due to Hei), and the awakening of her latent powers is referred to by some characters as the "beginning of the end". After meeting her mother, Suoh discovers that she is actually a 'copy' of the original Suoh who died in an explosion many years ago, created by Shion's power After reuniting with Shion, Suoh appears to die after the meteor fragment she is carrying breaks. Later, it is revealed that she has been transported to an alternate world without Contractors (including her brother), where she can live a normal life, with no memory of her previous one.
